WHAT WE DO:
More than 1,600 of St. Louis' children are in foster care because they have been abused, neglected, or abandoned. In many cases these children become victims a second time — in an overburdened child welfare system that cannot pay close attention to each child whose life is in its hands.
Our CASA volunteers gets to know each child and then lets the judge and others in the child welfare system know the child’s perspective and the child’s needs.
WHAT DO we:
Voices for Children advocates for abused and neglected children and youth in St. Louis by representing their best interests in court and in the community.
A community where every child is nurtured, supported and has access to connections and resources necessary for them to know their value and reach their full potential.
